"Cupid Boy" is a song by Kylie Minogue from her eleventh studio album Aphrodite (2010).

Background and composition

Release

"Cupid Boy" was released as part of an Aphrodite minimix, containing six songs in a six minute mix, which was released on Kylie's YouTube channel on 7 July 2010.

"Cupid Boy" was initally planned to be the fourth single released from Aphrodite, fifth after "Better Than Today" was chosen for release, with already commissioned remixes; it was waiting for it's turn, but when "Better Than Today" didn't do as expected, it was frozen with all the other upcoming plans for the album. Warner considered the idea to service some of the mixes to Australian clubs to go along with the arrival of the Aphrodite: Les Folies Tour, but the idea was ditched. Eventually some of the remixes made it on the "Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love) and Aphrodite Les Folies Tour Edition releases.

Live performances

Kylie first performed "Cupid Boy" at various events throughout 2010. She also included the song in the set list for her Aphrodite: Les Folies Tour in 2011; the song opened the Gladiator section, where Kylie emerged in a black feathered crinoline dress designed by Italian desingers Dolce & Gabbana.

Lyrics

If only you knew, I shimmer for you
Oh, the very thrill of it
I'm hooked on your line, under your spell
Your love is king
You color me gold, now that you know
Baby, you've got all of me
I'm hooked on your line, you're under my skin
I need your touch

So why don't you thrill me
Like you did before?
Why don't you give me
A little bit more?
Why don't you call me
Start hitting me up?
Hitting me up, hitting me up
Give me your love
You got it all sown up
And your beat's so very
I could never get enough
You got the good stuff, good stuff

Cupid boy, when we touch
I'm in heaven in your arms
Fire, the way you love
Feels like heaven in your arms
Skyrocket to Mars
Straight through to your heart
Every time we touch
I'm shooting the stars
Cupid boy, when we touch
I'm in heaven
Cupid boy

I'm losing my grip, letting it slip
Baby, I want all of you
You're reeling me in, every time I give in
I'm addicted

So why don't you thrill me
Like you did before?
Why don't you give me
A little bit more?
Why don't you call me
Start hitting me up?
Hitting me up, hitting me up
Give me your love
You got it all sown up
And your beat's so very
I could never get enough (baby)
You got the good stuff, good stuff

Cupid boy, when we touch
I'm in heaven in your arms
Fire, the way you love
Feels like heaven in your arms
Skyrocket to Mars
Straight through to your heart
Every time we touch
I'm shooting the stars
Cupid boy, when we touch
I'm in heaven
Cupid boy

Cupid boy, cupid boy, cupid boy
I could never get enough
You got the good stuff, good stuff

Cupid boy, when we touch
I'm in heaven in your arms
Fire, the way you love
Feels like heaven in your arms
Skyrocket to Mars
Straight through to your heart
Every time we touch
I'm shooting the stars
Cupid boy, when we touch
I'm in heaven
Cupid boy
